IBM Common Data Provder for z Systems







Abstract: IBM Common Data Provider for z Systems provides a streamlined method for gathering z/OS operational data (SMF, SYSLOG, JOBLOGs, etc.) for forwarding to other products, particularly log analysis/analytics products. This paper walks through a use case of integrating the IBM Common Data Provider for z Systems with the Elastic Stack, also called ELK stack, which consists of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. These open source products are used for collecting, searching and analyzing data to provide intelligent analytics. The paper uses an example of sending z/OS SYSLOG data to the Elastic stack to walk through the required customization actions to enable the integration between CDPz and ELK.
